The key to shooting better sunset photographs!
When you are browsing through some of the photography communities online including the dA waterscapes gallery you see quite a lot of photographs of sunsets with their photographers wondering why their photographs are not getting the same amount of reaction as others. Most of the time, it has not got anything to do with big trade secrets but actually quite a few simple things you can do to make your sunsets better.
We all started from the beginning where we just took a photo right at the sun that was setting down over the water and that is the typical error in sunset photography and it is knowledge of the composition and how the camera works that can help getting a better photograph.
Composition
The first thing is really the composition. If you just set up your camera and take a photo then you will likely only get a photo once in many thousand times. The first thing you want to do is to look at your scene, find out if you have any interesting objects that you could possibly inclu

Hello world of DA, it's been a loooong time! I know I haven't been the most active on here. It's mainly due to personal drama, work and life general. The past year I noticed that I wasn't inspired to do any photography. I felt incredibly drained by everything going on around me, so much so that I couldn't even bring myself to open photoshop. But never fear, things have gotten better and the new year has brought a lot of change. Mainly within myself. I've decided that I won't accept any less than I deserve, which has brought about a burst of creative energy. Ok, enough with the sappiness blah blah. I hope everyone has been doing well and producing lots of lovely works of art. I'll start sharing some of what I've been doing lately and some older pieces that I didn't get a chance to post on here. 

I've also opened up an etsy store so if you are interested in gracing your walls with some of my colorful photos, now you can! 

I haven't had a chance to post everything under the sun yet, so it's a work in progress. But if there is something you want up there, please let me know! 

I think it's time for another feature. Enjoy! :heart:

I love my macro lens. I like putting different objects together and experimenting with new techniques. I enjoy when a photo has colors that punch you in the face.
